Hello everyone!

Today marks the start of the first photography competition! These competitions will test you skills at photographing a variety of subjects. They will run once a month, so lets get going!

This months subject: Open! Lets get the best overall picture to start off the competition.

Rules: This is strictly a photography contest! No photochopping, but contrast, brightness, levels and other minor touch-ups (healing tool will be allowed for film and print scans). Please avoid any text on the photograph, except at most a copyright statement, remember distractions like text can take away from the composition. Digital and film photography are both allowed. Only one submission per user will be allowed.

Awards: 500 Points to the winner, and choice of next weeks competition topic.
100 points for the runner up (only will apply when competition reaches 5 submissions).

Length: Competition closes Monday the 22nd at 10:00 PM EST.
Voting lasts until Monday the 30th at 10:00 EST.
The winner needs to PM me the topic for the next competition (please try to think up topics while voting goes on, incase you win).

HAVE FUN!

Much nicer size. Thanks for finding that Musik. I love that picture for some reason! Everything is perfect with it. I like how the trees and everything in the foreground is a solid black color. I like the gradient of the blue sky, the orange sunset, the reflection of the water, and then to top it off you have that minature moon. I really do not think this picture could have been taken any better. I am fairly sure you know which one I will be voting for :)

Would you mind if I added this picture over at http://www.wallpapercollection.com/ ?

Thanks BWM, its actually a small lake nearby where I live, I took a heap of shots that night on my dusk drive, the night sky and moon just looked insane.

No probs to add to the wallpaper site. That would be great :D

I agree musik, that's a fantastic shot. since I think we shouldn't be
voting for ourselves, you'll get my vote. :)

I think the shot is much better at this size. I can actually see the quality
and everything. Using it as my wallpaper now ;)

:lol: sorry I don't mean to laugh but that first big white one is about 1000 ft away from were I took the picture and the smaller ones on the left are about 500 ft away and the lines in the fore ground are guide wires for a 300 ft FAA tower. If you look at the bottom of the white one on the right you see a little box at the base. That box is about 5 ft. high, so you can figure out how tall the wind mills are :D

I don't know why one link works and the other doesn't but the pic is in the same exact place. If you click on the first link it brings up the pic in a separate window. :D

me too. I just couldnt decide.

I guess since I started out with so many by the time I was down to six I couldnt decide.


*off topic I saw some pictures and decided to make this:
-REMOVED- Slideshow - You'll want sound.

I made it this morning. I'll send it out to all the SFP'ers for their amusement. (I was the photographer)
enjoy!
